I am learning to be comfortable in my silence which in turn, is helping me understand how much I have to say that is worth saying.

Poem a Day #11

on those days when the voices in my head
are louder than the voices on the page,
silence scares me.

when I listen not only to the space between the words
but to space that echoes from words left unspoken,
silence understands me.

when I remember that saying nothing at all
can be as powerful as shouting at the top of your voice,
silence comforts me.
